Rape Joke Never Quits
I remember this joke being used by a candidate for the governor in Texas many years ago. It didn’t work for him then, it isn’t working for this guy now.
India\’s top police official apologized Wednesday for saying, \”If you can\’t prevent rape, you enjoy it,\” a remark that has outraged women across the country.
Central Bureau of Investigation chief Ranjit Sinha made the remark Tuesday during a conference about illegal sports betting and the need to legalize gambling. The CBI, the country\’s premier investigative agency, is India\’s equivalent of the FBI.
Sinha said at the conference that if the state could not stop gambling, it could at least make some revenue by legalizing it.
\”If you cannot enforce the ban on betting, it is like saying, \’If you can\’t prevent rape, you enjoy it,\’\” he said.
The remarks have caused outrage across India, which in the past year has been roiled by widespread protests following the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi.

I’ve flinched many a times on hearing a male colleague remark ‘When rape is inevitable, just lay back and enjoy it’, to the say the least this remark is not only chauvinistic it is awfully insensitive. This remark is usually to imply that the boss gave them a hard time. Do these men even know the agony, humiliation and heartbreak a woman goes through during and after rape?
